One of the most disappointing sequels of all time! The acting though is worth a star, and it's entertaining enough. Overall a money grab garbage movie that's more focused on mutated boring humans then our protagonists and apes.

The rest of the "Apes" original sequels are a lot better than they are remembered for being. Once you get past the dated prosthetics, you're left with some biting social commentary that is still relevant today. Sure, there are clunky moments here - the next two films are a lot better - and Heston's role is explained away in a decidedly ham-fisted way, but overall the franchise as a whole continues along a solid path here.

150703: Weak follow-up to Planet of the Apes. Rushed at times and a bit too hokey.

What makes the sequel so intriguing to watch, is the entire unfolding of the Earth's past. The mystery behind the mutants and the Earth's past pushes the audience to continue watching the film. It's intriguing, this hellish post apocalyptic world that the humans live in. Despite all this, a somewhat bleak plot line and a terrible ending holds back this sequel from stardom.

Beneath the Planet of the Apes is a decent film. It is about the sole survivor of an interplanetary rescue mission who searches for the only survivor of the previous expedition. James Franciscus and Kim Hunter give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Ted Post did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the action and adventure.

4/10 - Shockingly pointless. Useless, simple, rehash of the first with odd, unnecessary, plot twist.

It was OK. Not nearly as good as the first one. Nova was way hotter in this one though.

An oddball sequel that's both rehash and far departure.

I love the original and most of the sequels, with the exception of battle, but this movie had no idea what the original was trying to be. In this movie bright eyes, or taylor, or whatever you want to call him goes missing, and a new astronaut goes and tries to find him. What follows is mutant humans, the backwards spiral of Nova's character arc, and *spoiler alert* a nuke that blows up the whole entire earth... Although the acting is still good, and the makeup is just as stunning all in all not very good only helped by the previous tone

Probably rushed out too quickly to keep the Apes fresh in our minds. This installment was way off base to me and should've been omitted from the series.

The first hour flirts with some cool things while never matching the intelligence or feel of the first film, but after that it becomes laughably bad.

I'm sure this seemed better when it was originally released due in large part to a dearth in solid science fiction stories, but it hasn't aged well.

Didnt like this as much as the other planet of the apes movies. This is the 4th one. Still a must see if u love this scifi serie of movies.

All's good while above ground, even though it's almost a blow by blow remake of the first film. Once the ludicrous 'underground' plot takes hold though this movie rapidly deteriorates into sixties sci fi hokum.

While it's agreeable that POTA could have used a sequel, it's hard to believe this was the best that could have came up. Several elements are retreated on, though most of the good elements are forgotten. The plot has many confusing pieces to it and wears down the concept quickly. This film ends up becoming a unessential sequel.
½ November 28, 2014
The sequel expanded the dystopian planet of the apes carrying the same atmospheric feeling that turned into an entertaining piece when watching the continued story of the sci-fi classic. Next to that is the okay production values and the pleasantness, but, however, it's a weak entry towards the climax and turn of events. (B)

(Full review coming soon)

Hokey, old-school fun as background. LOVED the mutants worshipping a nuclear bomb!

Was der erste Teil mit Überraschungen wett gemacht hat, erschrickt man sich im zweiten Teil nur noch! Die Effekte sind billiger geworden und die Geschichte wiederholt sich. Man hat den Rest vom ersten Teil nur wieder aufkochen lassen. Die Story ist ja nicht schlecht, aber der Schluss ist absoluter Trash geworden. Das hat den ganzen Film wieder komplett versaut!
